Jan’s special delivery

Posted on 22 December 2016  - 06:15

One year ago, Jan Vertonghen made a Christmas delivery of goods collected by Club staff and players to the North Enfield Food Bank for people living in crisis within the local area.

The visit had a significant impact on the Belgian, who at the time had recently become a father for the first time, and he took great interest in the work of volunteers at the Food Bank and asked how he could do more on a personal level.

Following his initial visit, Jan and his partner have become regular contributors to the Food Bank and the defender has been known to stop by with goods after training.

So this year’s Christmas delivery of foodstuffs collected by the Club takes on an extra meaning to Jan and his family, serving as yet another great example of the charitable side our players so often show.
